A holiday gift guide, from me to you ….
Need a gift that will short the circuit boards of your tech-inclined loved one? Look no further. Here’s another Hot 10 list of holiday gift ideas from Santa Grouch.
Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 ($300, ardrone2.parrot.com): Who says only the U.S. military can fly surveillance drones? Parrot’s AR.Drone 2.0 quadricopter has a hi-def camera (720p) that shoots video and photos from heights up to 164 feet. (The first AR.Drone peaked at 20.) It’s now easier to pilot with a three-axis magnetometer added to a three-axis gyro and three-axis accelerometer. Even if that means nothing, it’ll impress the gift recipient. Best of all, this drone is controllable by an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch app.
